The Care and Support at Home Framework ‘Review of Charges’ clause provides a mechanism for service providers to request an increase to their charges as a result of unexpected and exceptional change in market factors or the circumstances of the service provider that has led to a significant change in costs.
Since implementation of the clause a number of providers have applied to the Council to increase contracted charges and have evidenced the contractual requirements in relation to the review of charges.
The Executive Director for Children, Adults, Families, Health & Education has:-
1. Approved the proposed increase in line with the terms and conditions of the Care and Support at Home Framework Agreement ‘Review of Charges’ clause.
2. Agreed to delegate authority to the Director of Adults Social Care to authorise future requests for price variations in line with the terms and conditions of the Care and Support at Home Framework in consultation with the Strategic Finance Business Partner and subject to the cost being affordable.
